Are you opposed to Dutch?

Earlier this week, we talked about how cheap dates have their place.  I then received an email asking about my opinion on “going Dutch” or paying half of the date.  So here it is: I don’t like having Dutch sprung on me.  If we are paying our own way, I prefer to have this information beforehand.

I think the people who oppose Dutch usually don’t like being asked out then being forced to pay their own way.  If we agree to do this ahead of time, it is different then going out and expecting someone to pay for you.

My opinion of a guy would change if he asks me out then expects me to pay my own way.  It’s hard to explain but I believe that if a guy does not want to take me out and pay my way, he does not think of me romantically.  I don’t mind paying my own way in a relationship, but I am old school when it comes to paying my way as part of dating.

What do you think? Are you against going Dutch?  Do you think a guy who asks a woman to pay her half of the bill sees her as a platonic friend?

random: is there any kind of foot/shoe tape to keep your shoes from making that flip flop sound when you walk? I swear all that flipping and flopping can work a nerve.

That’s the design of the show mules, disco, and the design of the flip flop. Sounds like you would like people to velcroe their heels to the sole.

leggs – the sound just irks the heck out of me. seems like if they don’t have “tools” for that then folks should be able to adjust their stride to prevent it. it just sounds country as heck up in the workplace. I mean it’s all loud. a healthy “smacking” sound.

ITL – it’s several folks. the toenail cutter is the one who has the crusty flour-glass feet though.

durty – I see that you like to make assumptions. my real life friends get sick of listening to me whine about not getting any. lol. my guy friends get annoyed when I list the reasons why they aren’t the one that can’t break me off. whew, men are sensitive. call them out on a receding hair line, a bald spot or a beer belly and their little feelings get hurt.
